WHAT'S IN THIS NEWSLETTER
The launch of the hardcopy version of The Virtuosa Organisation is not far off. Knowledge Resources are at the print stage.
This month we're training 15 associates of Change Partners in the use of story during coaching interventions.
Noticed that there is much more talk these days about values and virtues - at the country, organisation and individual level? But few get it right. From a Bloomberg report in The Cape Times 23rd January, 2015: "Huawei Technologies forgave more than 4000 workers (according to their founder) .... who were involved in corruption, fraudulent business practices, falsifying business results...". Chief executive Ren Zhengfei said, "The biggest enemy is not others, it's ourselves".
New articles and practitioner tools continue to be added to the Halo and Noose Member's section.
For those in the London area, see (in the main body of this newsletter) the special story - telling course coming up soon.
"All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don't mean anything

- lyrics from Brandi Carlile's song: The Story
"If you want to feel secure do what you already know how to do. But if you want to grow... go to the cutting edge of your competence, which means a temporary loss of security. So, whenever you don’t quite know what you are doing, know that you are growing..." - Viscott, 2003
"Only people who can fully surrender to things beyond themselves can experience awe, wonder, or enchantment" - Richard Rohr
“An economic system centered on the god of money needs to plunder nature to sustain the frenetic rhythm of consumption that is inherent to it,” Pope Francis said in October, 2014. “The monopolizing of lands, deforestation, the appropriation of water, inadequate agro-toxics are some of the evils that tear man from the land of his birth. Climate change, the loss of biodiversity, and deforestation are already showing their devastating effects in the great cataclysms we witness". Reported in The Guardian
"Every noble work is at first impossible" - Thomas Carlyle, 1795-1881
"Wisdom is not the result of mental effort; it is a way of being--a way of being whole and fully open to a knowing that is more than rational thought alone" - Richad Rohr
